There are major differences between HouseWorks and other home care agencies. Read more about the top 12 ways HouseWorks distinguishes itself from other agencies.

  • Top 12 Ways HouseWorks is Different than Other Agencies

    • Focus on Seniors Closed Open

      HouseWorks serves seniors and only seniors. This laser focus means all our resources are dedicated to helping seniors age at home, even in the most complicated set of circumstances.

    • Proprietary, Proven Care Methodology Closed Open

      HouseWorks’ BetterCare at Home™ approach goes above and beyond simply providing help with Activities of Daily Living, such as dressing, toileting and bathing. We find activities each client loves and help them do them for as long as possible. Research shows that being engaged in life can slow down mental and physical decline.

    • Case Management Model Closed Open

      Our Case Management Model wraps clients and their families in support as we guide them through the challenges of aging at home. HouseWorks assigns every client to a dedicated CareTeam so families know who to call for questions or advice 24/7.

    • Caregiver Screening Closed Open

      We have a rigorous background check process that most Caregivers don’t pass. We recruit, train and support the most experienced and reliable companions, Home Health Aides or Certified Nursing Aides in Greater Boston.

    • Caregiver Training Closed Open

      Our Caregiving staff is highly trained, and we invest in their education by providing advanced training in dementia & memory loss, COVID transmission and other important health topics.

    • Easy Scheduling Closed Open

      Our proprietary technology provides seamless scheduling. HouseWorks has a large roster of Caregivers, which means there’s  backup coverage in case a Caregiver needs to call out sick.


    • Flexible Care Options Closed Open

      Our care grows with clients as needs change – from a few hours a week to 24/7 live-in care. You have the ability to scale care up or down depending on needs.

    • Personalized Care Closed Open

      We start each engagement with a comprehensive, holistic home care assessment that focuses on health and wellbeing. We create a customized in-home care plan that’s regularly updated. CareTeams are familiar with seniors’ preferences and habits, appointments and daily schedule, and day-to-day needs.

    • Technology Infrastructure Closed Open

      Unlike agencies still operating on paper systems, we have invested millions in technology that allows us to capture clients’ unique needs and communicate daily and long-term care plan across care team. Tech facilitates communication between CareTeams and families.

    • Corporate Resources Closed Open

      We started as a small local agency and operate today with the same personal touch. This combination means we keep our friendly touch but have more resources and services than small agencies can offer.

      HouseWorks is licensed, bonded, and insured – which means you don’t need to assume the liabilities of employing workers in Massachusetts or the risk of uninsured workers entering your home or living space.

    • Company Track Record Closed Open

      Founded in 1998, we are a Boston-based company with a leadership team of senior care veterans. We deliver more than 375,000 hours of care delivered annually and have scores of industry awards and 5-Star Reviews and Testimonials from satisfied clients.

    • Partnerships Closed Open

      We are a trusted government partner with contracts with the Boston VA and Medicaid. HouseWorks has partnerships with some of the largest housing, including Hebrew Senior Life. Strong relationships with hospitals and medical facilities mean they refer their patients to HouseWorks.

Care That Changes As Your Needs Change Senior home care, where, when and how you need it.
